Class of 2020

Hello! My name is Calvin Williams. I’m 16 years old and for the past 9 years I’ve lived in Seattle Washington. My siblings and family are very important to me, I have a stepbrother who is 18 named Jensen, a sister who is also 18, Maya, and my 15 year old stepsister, Avery. My weekends are mostly spent doing homework but I also loving going to my high school, Roosevelt’s football games.

My school life and life during the week is when I’m doing the most. I’m taking two AP classes and honors precalculus. I play the saxophone and I am a part of the Wind Ensemble at school while I also take private lessons outside of school. But where I spend most of my time is with the marching band, I’m the drum major where I conduct the band at home football games, basketball games, and parades. During the summer I am also a part of the Seattle All City Marching band. I learn songs, I get to meet people from all over Seattle, take part in parades and attend music events. During the school year I also am apart of my school’s Creative Arts Quarterly. We are a group of students who collect poems, pieces of artwork and stories where we publish them every quarter of the school year. For sports I enjoy running, biking, hiking, and indoor climbing.

My sister, Maya, was originally the one who found out about the IBIP Program, but as soon as I heard about I knew it was something that I wanted to do. I saw it as a challenge for myself to be creative and find solutions to complex, real-world problems while helping and collaborating with others. When I attended the International Business Summit over the Summer I encountered a diverse group of people who were equally or even more driven than I am to create real change. I decided to join the IBIP program because instead of sitting on the couch and watching the news, hearing about struggles around the world, I realized I could do something to help.

Class of 2020

Hello, my name is Emily McCulloch. I’m sixteen years old and a junior at Roosevelt High School. My Dad grew up in Australia, but I was born in Seattle so I have dual citizenship. I attended Greenlake Elementary School and Eckstein Middle School.  I have a half-sister named Eva who is sixteen years my junior. My schoolwork, friends, and family are very important to me.

I have been singing my entire life, and enjoy dancing and acting. I love taking part in Theatre activities and shows at my school. I was inducted last November to be a member of the National Thespian Honors Society. On weekends I often volunteer at a local Improv Theatre that provides services for the community. I stay curious about world issues through reading, researching, and discussing current events with friends and family. I am very interested in political activism and minimalism. This year I am starting a minimalism club partnering with Cecile Andrews, an activist, author, and renowned community organizer.

I’ve always been interested in activism and worldwide issues, and IBIP is a wonderful opportunity for me to be able to direct my energy into something that I am very passionate about. I hope to pursue a career in which I work towards creating solutions to global issues, and this is a great way for me to get experience in this field, and gain direct problem-solving skills. I’m looking forward to working with a team of highly-capable high schoolers in order to solve real-world problems and create positive change in communities around the world.

Class of 2020

Hello! My name is Kiera Ohtake, I’m seventeen years old and am currently a junior at Roosevelt High School in Seattle, Washington. I live with both of my parents, and I have two younger siblings; Sophia, who is 15 and Jake, who is 11.

Starting in freshman year, I became super involved in the theatre department at my High School. I started out by being apart of the Tech crew, but now mostly focus on acting and singing in various productions. This year, I had the opportunity to direct/ produce a short play , which is something that has been a completely new and amazing experience, this year I am super excited to be a lead in our Spring Musical.  I also am on the Water1st ( a non- profit organization) youth board, am a member of the National Thespian Honor Society, and am on the Roosevelt Yearbook Staff. During the summer, I work as a barista in a french bakery in downtown seattle. I also love to take dance classes at different local studios. I don’t play many sports, but I am on my schools swim team which practices every day before school in the fall. My favorite class besides theatre, Is AP Japanese. I have been studying japanese for five years, and hope to be able to live in Japan in the future.

I want to pursue a career where I am leaving a positive impact in the lives of other people, and IBIP is an opportunity where I am able to work to help positively change someone else's life. I am thrilled to be on a team with people who want to make a difference, and to be able to work with amazing people through Leadership Initiatives.
